Steampunk inspiration and resources

“Jade” Balloon 8×8 Shadowbox

Another Monday, another new piece of Steampunk-inspired artwork. I don’t think a person can have too many hot air balloons in their life, so here is another piece employing a chandelier “dangle” turned upside down to create the shape. I love the way the facets capture the light, and the box changes throughout the day depending on the angle and amount of light in the room. I’ve been experimenting with adding props to my photos so I went with a book pedestal in this shot. What do you think?

    I like the books and the sepia spotlight effect!

    • Thanks! I have been having a lot of fun with the different features on Picasa. That effect is called “vignette”, the default is black but you can choose any color.
